Staff were really friendly and the food was tasty and very reasonably priced, especially considering the portion sizes! Alcohol was also cheaper than a lot of places. I think we went in three times and we were only visiting for three days!

Dublin Airport us approx 15 to 20 minutes away by Taxi but this of course is highly dependent on the time of day. At rush hour it is a lottery but by evening time it's much easier to get about Dublin.
